    Great book Well written characters with a story that flows naturally one scene into another The author introduces the reader to the history of our characters and their land gradually, and the action makes sense in the context of the overall tale I look forward to reading this series going forward.

    In the inspired style of David Gemmell, or Robert Howard, D Emrys takes the minimalist approach to his stories By that, I mean he lets the story speak for itself Dialogue and action are the foundations of the world and story, rather than detailed description or extensive world building facts It can be a tricky approach to pull off, and most who attempt the strategy end up either losing their true writing voice or falling into simplicity Fortunately for D Emrys, the strategy mostly pays off In the inspired style of David Gemmell, or Robert Howard, D Emrys takes the minimalist approach to his stories By that, I mean he lets the story speak for itself Dialogue and action are the foundations of the world and story, rather than detailed description or extensive world building facts It can be a tricky approach to pull off, and most who attempt the strategy end up either losing their true writing voice or falling into simplicity Fortunately for D Emrys, the strategy mostly pays off and we readers are treated to a fully realized fantasy world replete with the mental and emotional maturity I demand from my modern fantasy reads When I imagine the author sitting down and drawing the beginning of the story, I don t imagine himself asking what the story will be like, or wh...

    This is a well written book, and I found it quite easy to get into The descriptions are good if a little repetitive at times when it comes to describing people we are constantly being reminded about the defining characteristic of some characters and the story is intriguing There is plenty of action, with the fight scenes not being skimped on but explored quite thoroughly, evokingof the senses than just saying what the characters can see.But From Man to Man was written purely from Dr This is a well written book, and I found it quite easy to get into The descriptions are good if a little repetitive at...

    This sequel of From Man To Man is excellent,To say that I thoroughly enjoyed It Began With Ashes would be an understatement the characters of Draven, his friends and their families have really firmed up in my imagination and I can really picture them.I would have no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone who likes the combination of Historical...

    First of all The author gave me this book for free in exchange for a review.Having read D.E.M Emrys short story From Man to Man first, I thought like a lot of people who reviewed this book that Draven, or at least Nicolas, the Arneuton Tax Collector, would play a rather big role in the book, but this was not the case.Instead of having the story center around a rather classical protagonist, a middle aged ex mercenary looking for a new way of life, It Began With Ashes takes ...
